Books to Last Me ’til the End of the Year

Last month, I talked about my plan to read a book every 3 days (approximately) from that point to the end of the year, in order to be caught up with my 2020 challenge.

It’s been 29 days since that post, and I’ve consumed an additional 18 books, for a rate of a book every 1.6 days. That’s honestly a pleasant surprise!

If we wanted to be a purist though, 6 of those books are audiobooks. It’s a conundrum for me because I think I read faster than I listen (I’ll have to benchmark this soon officially), but I have more time to listen to something, like on my evening walks, during workouts, and while doing shallow work.

That also means that I haven’t been listening to as many podcasts as I would have had typically.

This leaves me with 8 books, with 8 weeks of the year left. Super manageable, and hopefully I won’t be rushing to cram these 8 books in the last week of the year.

Here are some of the books that I have on loan that will make up the rest of the year:

  • Hiding in Plain Sight, Sarah Kendzior
  • Make Time, Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky
  • Ultralearning, Scott Young
  • The Rational Optimist, Matt Ridley
  • Mindfulness, Joseph Goldstein
  • The Third Door, Alex Banayan
  • Good to Great, Jim Collins
  • Measure What Matters, John Doerr
  • Bad Feminist, Roxane Gay
  • The Making of a Manager, Julie Zhuo
  • Money, Laura Whateley
  • The Power of Moments, Chip Heath
  • Waking Up, Sam Harris

I’m pumped 🤓
